Just how confident was Mitt Romney of being elected president?
Turns out the Republican nominee had planned to celebrate with a fireworks display over Boston Harbor, according to a story in The Boston Globe. There was also a website planned for his transition, complete with a quote from President-elect Romney saying he is “excited about our prospects as a nation.”
The Romney transition website briefly went live and was taken down, but not before Taegan Goddard of the Political Wire blog managed to save some screenshots.
The eight-minute fireworks show, which would have been in view from Romney’s election night event at the Boston Convention Center, didn’t happen. Atlas Professional Fireworks Displays ended up taking the pyrotechnics back to its headquarters in New Hampshire.
